The governors of Arizona and Nevada met to discuss efforts to strengthen border security and combat methamphetamine trafficking.
Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano says she and Nevada Governor
Gibbons talked about confronting the fake documents used by illegal
immigrants and addressing drug trafficking, specifically the
smuggling of meth from Mexico into the United States.
Napolitano also said they discussed how the two states can more
easily share intelligence in those efforts.
Gibbons said such discussions will make a significant difference
in the lives of people in both states.
Gibbons also said he'll look into the possibility of a Nevada task force to help stop the use of fake documents. He noted that Arizona formed a task force that has succeeded in confiscating thousands of fake documents each year.
